Education is key to closing the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous employment rates. However, though levels of participation and attainment by Indigenous Australians in education and training has improved in recent years, substantial gaps still exist. This paper explores this disparity and how it can be addressed. It looks at current rates and trends in education and employment, programs that address educational issues for school students, apprenticeships and traineeships completion and attrition rates, programs that address issues in apprenticeships and traineeships, participation in higher education, certification and qualifications, occupational differences and outcomes, private and public sector employment, programs for job seekers, regional differences, creating job opportunities, barriers to economic participation, and lessons from overseas.
